The Bucket of Blood, with its live music, authentic bar, and elaborate decor, is frequently voted the best rural saloon in Nevada. It is an excellent example of a business founded in the 1930s that evolved in response to growing tourism. The McBride family opened the wall that originally separated two distinct one-bit saloons, creating a broader space. They then filled the saloon with antique lamps and pictures to attract visitors. The saloon was mentioned in an episode of TV’s Bonanza, and it responded with “Cartwright-era” decor. (Ronald M. James)
